‘Green’ Project in Cagayan de Oro Eyed

ITALPINAS INC. is putting up the first “green” eco-sustainable building complex in Cagayan de Oro, which is capable of generating part of its own electricity requirements for the buildings’ common spaces.

In a briefing yesterday, Italpinas chief executive Romolo Nati said the building was designed to have energy-saving and energy-generating features as the two buildings will be equipped with solar panels at the rooftop.

Nati said the use of solar panels could help lower the electricity bill that will be charged to tenants for the use of the common areas and facilities such as the gym and hallways, among others.
